Thread: Qb - 2018

    Qb - 2018

    Players lost: Troy Williams, Cooper Bateman
    Players gained: Some guy from So Cal...who am I kidding, the King Tut, Mr. Jack Tuttle
    Players returning: Snoop, the man with the plan, the Legs, the Wonder Kid, the elevator of QB's, the Sunshine Man, Tyler Huntley. And Jason Shelley, the silent assassin.
    Projected Starters: Tyler Huntley

    We are only two days into to spring, as Jack has looked good. Quick release, tightest spiral this side of the Mississippi. The future is bright.

    But, Huntley has decided to do his best to put this competition to bed as soon as possible. It sounds like Huntley has really separated himself from the other two QB's. How amazing is that. Gunther, as divisive as he can be, has made an incredible point the last couple of days.

    This is the first year we have had an offensive coordinator multiple years with a QB for multiple years. And it sounds like it shows.

    Just use the long number at the end of the link you copy from twitter between the bracketed portions. And spell twitter correctly in both brackets, I had to misspell the 2nd one with an "l" instead of an "i" to make the text appear in this post.

    Steve Bartle:

    The quality of play at QB is so much better
    Wow...Have seen some impressive throws from the QB's today
    Simpkins and Huntley have been unstoppable so far. Their chemistry is off the charts, Huntley has found Simpkins early and often
    Brad Rock:
    Jack Tuttle, one quick look: He's got serious touch on his pass
    Hans Olsen:
    Good luck to any QB trying to pry the start from Tyler Huntley. He's a dominant presence on the field right now.
    I asked Taylor how many carries a game he would like to see from Huntley in a game...6-8 called runs
    Andrew Fronce:
    All of the QBs were making good throws today, but Huntley was the most consistent perfomer.
    Jeremiah Jensen:
    Make no mistake, Tyler Huntley is the alpha dog in the Utes QB room. The JR made some nice plays on Day 1 of spring football.

    I’m seeing the tweet. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to show up.

    Safari does a lot of strange things.

    I think it's something weird with vBulletin. Because I get the same thing on Chrome. When I submit, the post shows up blank. But if I refresh the page, the Tweet will then show up. But it looks like what you've done is correct, because I see it.

    Thanks for the tweets in both threads, though. I love hearing this stuff. Spring ball is always so full of optimism. It's good for the soul.

    It'll be interesting to see if Taylor can hold Huntley to 6-8 designed runs per game. It's not the designed runs that we worry about anyway. It's the tuck and run.

    Yeah - that's Jack Tuttle.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I think this is key. I’d only call RPO 6-8 Times a game. Make the rest designed runs. That puts Huntley at 8-12 runs a game. That’s about right.

    Also, keep teaching Huntley to read the RPO. Let him learn whether to run, hand off, pitch, or throw. The idea was mostly new to everyone last season. Huntley is competitive; that's why he kept too many RPOs last season. That same competitiveness will help him decide to hand it off when handing it off is the right call.

    Actually, that's because of the Twitter API

    When a page is served, I have to count the number of tweets listed on the page so I can give each block a unique identifier (required by the Twitter API). When you do a quick-reply to a post with a tweet, it doesn't go through that counting code, so it doesn't know how to handle the tweet. The refresh fixes it.

    The Twitter API is pretty lame.
